Model Refactorings as Rule-Based Update Transformations

Ivan Porres, Model Refactorings as Rule-Based Update Transformations. TUCS Technical Reports 525, Turku Centre for Computer Science, 2003.


A model refactoring is a model transformation that preservers some
behavioral properties of a model. Equally important, a model refactoring
should only affect a previously chosen subset of the source model. In
this paper, we discuss how to define and execute model refactorings as
rule-based transformations. We also present an experimental tool to
execute these transformations.
